All of the above are storage devices for computer data. Not many computers can still ready floppy disks (think of the save button on Microsoft Word), but they are still an option on some computers. Tape, for those who are uninitiated, is often found in cassettes and other bulky items from the 1990s. Thin cassette tapes with music on them or VHS tapes that were used for movies.This is also a somewhat more obsolete way of storing data.

However, a network drive is the most likely option for those doing any type of backup today. It can be used wirelessly or plugged into the computer’s USB ports. This is going to be the easiest thing to use when the time comes.

All of the above devices mentioned, which include tape, network drive, and floppy disk are devices that can store data. Data storage in computers, is basically done in data storage devices. There are a range of data storage devices available in the market and these include compact disks, memory cards, and external hard drives.

A data storage device simply stores data so that it can be reused or accessed again at some later time. Hence, they are extremely important in the domain of computing. Without data storage devices, or (memory devices as they may call it), the domain of computers would never flourish.
